You do not have to apply for this option - it is available to all families that need a reduced fee. Thanks to donations from individuals, corporations, community organizations and through fundraising events, Camp Blue Hawk is happy to offer a subsidized fee.
The fee represents all actual costs associated with operating the program, including full-time and season personnel, staff training, food, program supplies, transportation, facilities, and marketing. By choosing to pay the Actual Fee, Camp Blue Hawk can help send more kids and families to camp.
Camp Blue Hawk will refund 50% of fees paid, less the $50 non-refundable deposit, for cancellations received in writing 14 days prior to the start of the session. Thereafter, no portion of the deposit is refundable, unless it is for a documented medical reason.
Additional Scholarship Request
Please do not allow finances to stand in the way of your child attending Camp Blue Hawk. We fundraise all year long for your child and are honored to help in any way possible. No camper will ever be turned away due to an inability to pay. Financial assistance is available to those who cannot afford to pay the full Subsidized Fee.
If you do not have the financial resources to cover the full Subsidized Fee, Camp Blue Hawk has funds available to assist with the cost. We encourage all families to attempt finding sponsors in addition to applying for a camp scholarship.
Both full and partial assistance is available depending on your need. Your request for a camper scholarship can be completed when you register your child through the online registration system. You may be asked to provide the first page of your most recent federal tax return and/or list any extenuating circumstances that are hindering your ability to pay the full Subsidized Fee.
Requests for a camp scholarship for SUMMER CAMP must be made by May 1, 2019.
Requests for a camp scholarship for TEEN RETREAT must be made by January 1, 2019.
Families seeking financial assistance are encouraged to seek fundraising opportunities within their own communities as well. We recommend that you contact local service clubs, relatives, businesses, or other organizations to find sponsors for the full or partial camp fee. Local groups like Lions Clubs, Kiwanis, and Rotary clubs are usually very happy to help - they just need to be asked. Often times these groups will make a considerable donation to your child or cover the entire camp fee. If you are unable to find sponsors, we can help! Feel free to get in contact us at anytime.
Sponsors should include their name, address, phone and e-mail with the check so that we can send a thank you letter. All checks should be made payable to "Harold Hamm Diabetes Center" with "Camper Name - Camp Program" in the memo line. (Ex: Jonny Diabetes - Teen Retreat)
All camper sponsorships must be received by the camp fee due date for the program the camper is attending.
